Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 314 #OTP

This week I share about my recent office reorganization and the resulting tech purge that it has resulted in as I start to clear out old technology and e-cycle it. We catch up on a slow week for Windows Insiders and discuss the potential release of the first 19H2 bits to testers. Then we discuss COMPUTEX and Microsoft’s interesting announcement about a modern operating system right in the middle of them sharing about new OEM hardware running Windows 10. Of course, spread throughout the show we talk about other things like the changes around the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and why some believe it is dead, tons of updates around apps and services, plus tidbits about gaming, security, and social media. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 232 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 232 of Observed.Tech. It has been a huge busy week to catch up on from all the new hardware at COMPUTEX, a little Windows Insidering adventure with inadvertent build releases, Google blocking ads, continued discussions around system security and real-time protection, and a new podcast I am now hosting for work. Starting with that last item, I am happy to invite all of you to listen in on the inaugural episode of the IT Pro Today PODCAST that we just started over at Penton and the Windows IT Pro website. I co-host with one of my Content Editors and the format will include an interview with someone in the IT Pro/Tech Community plus a follow on round table segment to talk about current news and other items. I hope you will come over and check out the show as we are getting started. Many of you know last week that some builds were inadvertently sent out to Windows Insiders and so we talk about that and how to sort your device out if you ended up getting the unintended build. Of course, COMPUTEX was big last week with so many hardware related announcements so I discuss those and how OEM hardware is improving overall plus what impact some new gear will have on Microsoft’s mobile plans. Sprinkled through out the show is other news such as Google Chrome and blocking ads, how smartphones have impacted customer service, Amazon forking out a lot of money for some unauthorized purchases, the 2017 Internet Trends report, and one of the biggest airplanes you have ever seen! As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 197 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 197 of Observed Tech. As we approach our 200th episode of Observed Tech I share some plans to mark the milestone including a very cool domain name for the show and plans for a new show portal. Among some of the things covered in this episode I discuss leadership changes at the top of the Windows Insider Program, a move by users to ask the EFF to pursue an investigation into Windows 10, the return of Bank of America to the Windows platform and what you can do if there is not an app available on Windows 10 Mobile for certain services. I then touch on Xbox and next week’s E3 events out in Los Angeles and what we can expect from Microsoft as the huge entertainment show kicks off with the companies big press conference on Monday. COMPUTEX 2016 has wrapped but it saw a huge push in the area of PCs of all types including high end devices for gaming/virtual reality along with news relating to Windows 10 and Windows Holographic. You can watch the entire keynote online now and there is a link over on the show notes page. There is also plenty of Windows 10 news and where things are moving as we get in the window leading up to the release of the Anniversary Update in July. I also share my thoughts on how builds might pan out over the next few weeks based on the past preparations for major Windows 10 releases last November and July. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
